The Governance of Health 2017 Conference

This event is all day

Liverpool Medical Institution, 114 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool L3 5SR

Tuesday 11 - Wednesday 12 July 2017

The Wellcome Trust-funded Governance of Health research project investigates the role of different experts – medical professionals, economists and management consultants – in British health policy-making since 1948. As the NHS approaches its 70th birthday and is faced with colossal challenges of funding, pay and contracts, access to care and a changing disease pattern, our conference will bring together, academics, politicians, civil servants, medical professionals and other experts in discussing past and present challenges in health policy-making.

The main objective of this conference is to discuss evolutions in health policy-making in the UK and internationally around key questions:

  • What challenges have the UK NHS and other health systems faced historically and what policy responses have been developed?
  • What can we learn from previous reforms and reorganisations of health systems?
  • What factors have affected successful collaborations between medical, managerial and health economics experts?
